yesterday in a bomber jacket in air force one saying romney is not worth the risk. >> after four years as president, you know me by now. you may not agree with every decision i've made. you may be frustrated at the pace of change, but you know what i believe. you know where i stand. you know i'm willing to make tough decisions even when they're not politically convenient. >> let's start by assessing these closing arguments. john, "you know me by know" can work both ways? >> it can work both ways but for this president that's not a bad closing argument. he also got a decent bit of economic news with the jobs report, came in about 46,000 over what the consensus forecast had been. and so he's casting this as we're slowly going in the right direction. we're on the right track. we've been through difficult times. and mitt romney's closing argument is we haven't gone far enough and we haven't gone fast enough. they both have reasonable arguments, hence why they're tied in the polls. gwen: we've heard i am the candidate of change. we've heard it more because barack obama made it such a big de
days. >> sean: as that rowdy romney crowd pointed out today, forget about four more years. we are four short days away from the most important election in your lifetime. who better to ask for predictions, form resorb senior advisor, fox news contributor karl rove. i'm actually with you. i got this romney three points and with the backlash that is now evolving on the east coast, six hour lines, violence, electricity, and the president goes in for a photo op and janet napolitano says today oh, we'll get it there as soon as possible be, i think there is going to be a big backlash in the course of this weekend. your reaction? >> look, i think sandy helped him early on because it stopped the conversation about the election and turned it to this gigantic storm but i think you are right the images we are now starting to see coming out of new york the film of the woman on staten island confronting senator schumer, these are not good things to happen. while the state is are generally in charge of disaster relief, the president the advantage of having been there air early and the disadvantage of
of change. we've heard it more because barack obama made it such a big deal four years ago. and mitt romney is trying to appropriate that. what's even more interesting about this closing argument is after the most negative campaign that we've seen probably in our lifetimes they are closing with a very soft sale to independent voters saying i can break the gridlock. it's ok that there are republicans, democrats. i'm going to be the one that can get us beyond that. it's two things, it's to appeal to independents. but another piece of it is the growing realization that congress is going to be divided regardless of who is elected as president and this next president has to deal with a divided government. gwen: i wonder how much of this is about economic development and the jobs numbers can play into that. people are saying they feel good about the economy even though they don't trust the president. >> i see these job numbers as basically being status quo. they can affect things in a big way. the decimal point kicked up one point but the actual job number was a little higher than forecasted. mit
obama last time, but we just can't afford four more years. [ romney ] i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. >> people lined up and waited patiently for the opportunity to their vote. earlier tonight -- there are referendums for it voters. same-sexand dream at, marriage, and one to expand gambling. table games and additional slots statewide. the biggest provision is in theg for casinos county. the expansion of gambling says it will mean that jobs and a more money for school. that is not so. it is no wonder some marylanders say they didn't know who it is for. >> here it is an right thing. if question seven passes, and that 2017 it is projected bring in a bomb. i'm billion dollars. casino operators can pocket 900 million. regulators of get a share. $750 million must go to the education trust fund. is $150 million more per without it. that is the main per student spending increases. >> the gambling revenue that the earmarks -- it says is. know the more money that and can replace of the monday that might have been sent to another pot. cook's the opponents have stripped the fax mark
after four states in swing states claiming the votes are going to obama and should be going to romney. >> because they know they are losing. >> jon: let's get back to the coverage. if president obama loses what is the media theme going to be? >> i think a lot of people, andrew sullivan, if you only voted, daily beast. if you only voted obama once you have to vote for him twice. i think some version of obviously the american people and alan is ready with that script. they bubbled up and he lost. think that is what he'll say. >> jon: if romney loses? >> it's going to be further indication that the republican party is dying, it's been taken over by tea party extremists. that the party is out of touch and demographically ill-suited. >> the problem with that. >> the rob with that, last year the religious right had taken over had taken over the republican party. now, it's the tea party but before that was the religious right. that has imploded because you don't see governor romney using abortion or gay marriage decisively. >> they became moderate, the religious right haven't taken over gove
it was president it was about monica lewinsky. >> but except mitt romney is not president. it happened four years before romney was running. >> take a random example, joe biden is good source but he doesn't get the attention that ford or reagan. >> would you say biden was biggest targets. >> among democrats. >> jon: do people take these impressions of the late night comedians they make? >> i think they must, why would president obama spend so much time on those shows. >> he spent more time talking to jay leno than he has talking to the press. >> romney has done no national press two weeks before the election. >> except us weekly and rolling stone. >> if he knew he would get coverage he would do it, too. >> where is romney. >> obama is all over the place. >> the president hasn't had a press conference or press corps at the white house in months. president of the united states is not answering questions on benghazi. >> obama is in charge of our middle policy, for example. we'll see what happens if romney wins but we know for sure obama does not want to answer any questions, anything about libya. >>
four show romney ahead. four others showed the race tied. you say mitt romney is ahead in your tracking polls. guest: i think the model most of them are using is the 2008 model and that was an unusual election. host: in terms of sampling? guest: yes. we know the intensity level -- first of all, of voting dropped off substantially in 20008. -- in 2008. the president won ohio by 4.16% -- 4.6% of the vote. we think that model -- we do not believe they have matched and that intensity this year. we think it has shifted into the republican camp. if you look at the counties around our major metropolitan areas, this is where we are substantially outperforming. not only 2008, but also the 2004 turnout. host: i want to ask you -- we have been talking about hurricane sandy and its effects this morning. do you think it will have an impact on ohio at all? guest: it certainly has had an impact in northern ohio. i live in the city of cleveland and was without electricity from monday to just yesterday. there are still 70,000 folks out. that does not even compared to the problems that new jersey and ne
and iowa and nevada. three of those four would give obama the presidency. so the romney campaign knows they're going to have to answer questions about this on the sunday shows tomorrow and on the final days of the race. they circulated a confidential memo to top republican leaders and surrogates. we got our hands on it. this is what they're saying. they're saying they're putting the obama campaign on defense. quote, mitt romney is up or tied with obama in every key battleground state forcing obama on defense in states he won by double digits in 2008 like wisconsin, iowa, michigan, minnesota, and pennsylvania. with the campaigns even on the ground and in early vote, gop enthusiasm is going to carry romney to victory. they're saying energy is on their side and look where obama is campaigning. the reality here is just because the obama campaign is playing defense that still doesn't mean they're going to lose those states. you can play defense and still win. so this is what the romney campaign is talking about today. >> what are both campaigns saying about their chances in ohio during these fin
said christie needs to redeclare for romney or take the blame for the next four years. do they need to reto their vow? >> if i were the romney campaign and believe me i'm not -- my advice is obviously from a tainted source but if i were, i would give chris to come in to pennsylvania and appear with governor romney. i think that, number one, would be good for chris christie's future in the republican party and two at least meet some of the appearance of him being with president obama. i think rupert mourdock had a moment of sanity. a brief moment of sanity. >> all right. governor ed rendell thank you very much. >> thanks guys. hang in there. >> thank you. from biggy small to nate dog. right ahead nate the number cruncher is take a break from his saturday cartoons and talks about what he calls the popular vote nightmare. i'm done!

, -- >> this is an advantage to getting obama in, it's a four year stretch, and opposed to romney who could run 8 years, and that would delay andrew. >> are you yefiguring -- >> andrew versus christie. >> let's >> the home stretch, american presidential race is undecided, not by the popular vote, or even by who wins a majority of states, but by who wins a majority of the electrical college votes, within those states. it takes 270 to win. the votes are's portioned by population, and the rules are winner take all. whoever wins the most popular votes in a given states wins all of that state's electrical votes. question: how many states are in play that can go either way? >> depending on how you count it, between 8 and a dozen, that are sitting on the fence, and, funny thing is, the polling has been varied, but romn has been strong overall, but obama strong in the states that count. that's where there is thero possibility there could be one winner of the most votes while the other gets the electrical. >> what are the battleground states? >> romney has about 191 locked up, he has to win florida, north caro
four more ars. [ romney ] i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. >> announcer: and now, from washington's leading news station, this is news 4 at 11:00. >> tonight, at 11:00, the long road to recovery. millions still without power. gas lines growing longer every hour. and, now, the threat of another storm for the east coast. >> plus, a new clue as police continue to look for the man responsible for a sexual assault on a popular trail. >> one-on-one with the ex-wife of the beltway sniper. >> they don't consider me and our children to be victims. >> why some people blame her for the shooting spree that left 10 dead. >> more reaction tonight to the mayor's decision to cancel this weekend's new york city marathon. mayor bloomburg says he will not allow controversy over that event to impede recovery from sandy. >> jay grey has the latest now from atlantic city. >> reporter: four days later and, still, the fury of sandy is too much for some to bare. flood waters carried a boat into ester larubio's home. >> we need help here, we truly do. >> reporter: many simply aren't going anywhe
, by the way. you got that absolutely right. four more days. >> reporter: and today, romney's closing argument, meant to appeal to those moderate voters, that sliver of voters in the middle who might still be persuadable, promising to work with the other party, with this attack aimed at the president. >> he promised he'd have a post-partisan presidency. but it's been the most partisan i've seen, with divisiveness and bitterness and division and demonization. hallmarks of his presidency. >> reporter: the romney campaign eager to move past those images of republican chris christie applauding the president's response this week to hurricane sandy. tonight, the campaign telling me their ground game in the swing states is far ahead of where john mccain's was four years ago. and here in ohio, they believe romney's strength among independents will fuel a win here. in the suburbs surrounding cincinnati, automated phones, dozens dialing at once. listen to this volunteer who reaches a coveted voter who's clearly had their phone ring before. >> you're not being punished. think of it is you are well liked.
and today governor romney made the argument over the four years of obama era, the country's confidence and attitude of americans are degraded by ongoing great recession and conflict in washington and inability to find political resolution . mr. romney issing restored confidence. >> three more days . three more days we can get to work rebuilding our country. and our confidence becomes resphored and our conviction is stronger and confidence that we are on a solid path of steady improvement and college graduates coming out of school and getting good jobs and confidence that single moms working two jobs will have a job and better shot. november 6th, tuesday, we come together for a better future and november 7th we will go to work. >> and as we begin to wrap up the live shot, we have rolled live on one of the romney motor cade and off to englewood, california and if the lighting is back for tv perfectionist. the sun is low in the sky and we are taking a lot of corners and we are bathed in sun light and shade and assistants trying to keep the shadows off of us is a great yoeman's effort. >>
for the right in this country. romney saying today, and four days i am not going to just take office, i am going to take responsibility. >> and someone needs to. we need true leaders in this country. obama gives greece beaches, but we have not had a true leader. we have had a politician in the office, a campaigner and chief. now we need a commander in chief. lou: angela is looking. [laughter] >> i love and love. i think those are aspirational words. unfortunately he is going to be proven wrong on tuesday night. i don't see very many paths to ctory. we talk about the polls, but i don't see him winning in ohio, and i don't see him carrying enough of this is to be elected. >> if he does not win ohio, he could take wisconsin, nev., and colorado. >> absolutely. lou: the unemployment rate today was supposed to be a big number for the presidents, for governor romney. it turns out to be really ither. >> it was not a game ginger today. and certainly with what was going on this week, with sandy, with christie and romney having that and greenberg's -- blumbes endorsements, slightly diminishing what happene
for president obama last time, but we just can't afford four more years. [ romney ] i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. >>> welcome back. when the wizards tip off against the celtics tomorrow night at the verizon center, seven players will play in front of a home crowd for the very first time, john wall and nene not included but kevin seraphin will likely be back after missing three weeks with a strained calf. the wizards started their season tuesday night in cleveland and took a 4th quarter lead on the jannero pargo three pointer only to fall to the cavaliers 94-84. the team has been preparing for the home opener against the celtics tomorrow night. >> we are coming off a loss. we know we didn't play well in that game. we still had a chance to win. so we feel like if we come out and execute things that we know we can do well, we'll have a chance to win the game. >> i'll real excited. my family is going to be there and this is my time now, my city, so to speak. now i'm going to have to be there to show what i'm capable of doing as well as my teammates. we'll have a big year. we hav
as it was four or eight years ago. >> greta: bob, what about benghazi. governor romney doesn't mention it, his surrogates do and we certainly discussed it here. any bearing at all on this? >> i think slight. not a lot. if you are on the fence benghazi certainly does not help the president. the president has been focusing on osama bin laden and the fact that he is dead. benghazi if you are on the fence maybe you vote against the president. but one way or the other a lot of people are for romney or obama and nobody is changing their mind. >> coming up, vice president biden taking a stab at late night tv comedy. you will see how did he, that'n next. , posters copies of my acceptance speech. great! it's always good to have a backup plan, in case i get hit by a meteor. wow, your hair looks great. didn't realize they did photoshop here. hey, good call on those mugs. can't let 'em see what you're drinking. you know, i'm glad we're both running a nice, clean race. no need to get nasty. here's your "honk if you had an affair with taylor" yard sign. looks good.

four years haven't worked and that mitt romney is the only one with a plan to turn things around. >> i want the election over with us i want to win it. i want to start moving forward. i want to stop this regression that we are in. economic recession. the silly transformation of america obama has undertaken. we want to get busy and start reversing this. the enthusiasm and momentum there is no question where it is. it is for romney. >> presidential elections unlike any other come down to character. character. character. character is the most important ingredient a president must possess to lead a great nation and lead the world and it is clear who has character and it is clear who doesn't have character. >> my guy, be barack obama, he's got characteristic. >>> we need a leader to clear the barriers. we need a leader to get behind our people. to get behind progrowth proven solutions to get people back to work. real recovery and that means we elect mitt romney the next president of the united states. >> they are excited today because unemployment didn't go back to 8%. it is 7.9%. they shou
four dead americans to take down romney. the minute romney backed off, they disappeared and helped go along with it. >> eric: may, i please. >> andrea: not all of them. >> can you at least agree with us that these networks should be covering this story? >> bob: yes, they should. >> eric: why aren't they? >> bob: i have no idea. i assume they're part of the grand conspiracy and coverup going on an meet in the white house every morning and get directions of what they are supposed to come in the news. you decided "new york times" somebody who got intelligence on the ground and evidence on the ground. the "new york times" had a reporter on the ground who said that this attack was a terrorist attack, this group was one of many who said they had some connection with al-qaeda. this group did see the video. did get upset about it. you can say the "new york times" and cite what they say and the other things. >> eric: back to the video. next on the rundown, romney doesn't normally sit down with gossip magazines but the president pops up in them day after day. which strategy is more becoming of
romney is campaigning over the last 48 hours, then surely the president who only has four days left until the general election, has to campaign, too, doesn't he? >> sure he can but he could divide his time, couldn't he? i don't see how he's spending any time focused on this. mitt romney has no responsibilities here. he's the challenger. he actually cut off his campaigning. at every one of these rallies he asks for contributions. nobody can substitute for the president of the united states. nobody. he's the commander in chief. it's his responsibility. what we have here is a commander in chief who is constantly putting the responsibility elsewhere. the economy, it's george bush's fault. benghazi, hillary clinton's fault. well, the buck stops with the president of the united states. he asked for the job. it's his responsibility to stay on top of it and he right now is not staying on top of this recovery. >> rupert murdoch has tweeted tonight that he thinks that governor christie should now publicly declare very loudly and clearly, redeclare his support for mitt romney given all the praise he
with a head start. the white vote, 44% to 53% for romney. i would say this. if governor romney can keep the white vote closer to 40%, he has a chance and getting minority turnout, that was the president's recipe for success four years ago. >> i know that is so crucial when you look at ohio, what do you see there? >> the reason, it has -- you look at a couple of different places. the north of the state. cleveland, over to toledo. a place where we think we see evidence the auto bailout is helping. across the industrial north. that means a lot of blew collar white voters supporting the president. then you come here to the southwest corner of the state. cincinnati is in hamilton county. it was blue four years ago. the state including cincinnati, 52% for the republican ticket, 47% for president obama. mitt romney -- it's a classic swing state, both campaigns essentially getting what they need where they need it. who can turn out the vote. >> and turn out the vote comes down to the ground game and they are saying we have a better ground game, more people. >> i see the president has a head sta
was only up by four. paul and ryan along with john avlon in toledo, ohio. romney has outspent the president in pennsylvania since he became the nominee. i saw this. i was stunned when our producer looked at these numbers. of the 15 million total, just in this week alone. is this money well spent? >> i think it makes a lot of sense for this reason. now, it's true that ohio might be a tighter state, but the question is, it's the marginal benefit. mitt romney spent a ton of time in ohio and if spending an additional few hours as we get closer to the election could make a big difference in pennsylvania given he has spent far less time in that state, that's what you've got to think about. real additional hours in ohio make that much of a difference there, where as in pennsylvania, it could be a difference in defeat. it's 20 electoral votes versus 20 in ohio. this could really scramble the map. >> i'm going to look at the map in a second, but first, paul, i want to go to you. mitt romney has put 2 million ads worth in pennsylvania over the past week and become's going to campaign for him on monda
. >> only four days to go until the election and the final push begins. team obama and team romney crisscross the country making their case and trying to pick up every last swing state vote they can. the ground game working around the clock. the air game, in carpet bomb mode. the surrogates, surrogating. two men, four days, and the future of our country at stake. if you're scared, get a dog. >> jennifer: first things first. let's get you up-to-date from the aftermath of hurricane sandy. today new york city announced it will not hold it's annual marathon after complaints that it would drain resources from emergency responders. one of the biggest problems facing the area has been a major gas shortage with many of the stations that are out of power or out of gas or both. today the federal government turned to the defense department to deliver 24 million gallons of extra fuel, and lift restrictions on deliveries by foreign ships. governor andrew cuomo waved taxes on fuel tangors. in new jersey governor chris christie signed an executive order of gas rationing starting tomorrow. and 4.3
will be determined in just the next four days. the latest abc news poll shows mitt romney leading by one point. and while president obama enjoys overwhelming up port from african-americans, it's complicated. a new documentary series asking, will those same voter who propelled him to victory in 2008 turn out again? here's abc's pierre thomas for your voice, your vote. >> what he represented to a nation of kids was hope. >> in this campaign ad released today, superstar rapper jay-z encourages black voters to get out the door and into the polling booth for barack obama. >> i'm barack obama and i approve this message. >> reporter: with a 96% approval rating among black voters, though -- >> four more years! four more years! >> reporter: you may wonder why it's necessary. the reason? while support for the president among the democratic faithful remains high, this time, there's a decidedly different feel than that of election night 2008, a historic moment for the country as a whole, but a particularly meaningful one in the african-american community. >> i can't believe it! >> reporter: the tears flow
in office. what about the next four years? what would a romney presidency really look like. joining me to nothiprognosticati melber, neera tanden, kate ton dawson. let's start with the tax plan. if there is something i believe mitt romney is invested in doing, it is the tax plan. he claims it is revenue neutral. >> you have to claim certain things. this goes for both sides. there is this thing called business cycle. this is what we study. in a free market economy, recessions and recoveries, upswings and down swings are part and parcel of the world we live in. when you look at how budgets are proposed, off of the congressional budget office projection. they are not that realistic. in 2014, 2015, 2016, they are projected real gdp growth of 4.4%. sounds pretty good. how realistic is it? if you take a look at reality, what's happened since the beginning of the century? gdp has grown at 1.7% and we know we are in a pretty sluggish economy. there is a huge disconnect between what's proposed and what's going on outside this window? >> that's the big deal. the claim is, i'm going to go in and
